Can log files be time stamped? (such as FTP login and transfer log files)


I want to set up my log files so that they are time stamped. I especially want to do this to my samba and FTP log files so that I can see what is going on at what time... yah know. So, the big question is how would I do this?

You can do this with ProFTPd. It supports apache style customisable logs - maybe you want to have a look at it. Personally, it's the only ftp daemon I recommend, has a very good history plus a very powerful configuration engine.

I use proftpd. But my log isnt time stamped. Do I have to configure something to make it that way?

Yes, most likely since naz gave you a link to their website and stated they have apache like cusotomizable log files. Try reading some of their docs there, you should find what your looking for there.
